Favorite Mexican Restaurants Around the State?

While Appleton has plenty of great Mexican cuisine, I'd like your feedback on the best places around the state to eat.

In Madison, for example, I love the authentic Mexican cuisine at a little dive on Midvale Boulevard north of Highway 12/18. It's Guanajuato's (or Taqueria Guanajuato). Having been in Mexico recently, this place was a refreshing change of pace from the Americanized Mexican food we usually find. Great tortas and other cuisine from the State of Guanajuato. Not far from there, just one exit further west on Hwy 12/18, is Cancun Mexican, a little more standard but very tasty. Their fish tacos are tremendous.

Milwaukee has a huge selection of places. La Perla is one of its most popular gems, one of the few places in the world to offer a chili pepper ride (like a mechanical horse, but it's a chili). The food is actually quite good. But what's your favorite place?
Any time we get near Milwaukee, we make an effort to stop in for a meal at Conejitos(539 W Virginia St). Gran alimentos baratos y super!
Try Taqueria Guadalajara on at 1033 South Park Street in Madison. The taco al pastor is really good, like street tacos.
La Perla? Seriously? Why don't you venture into the not so nice neighborhoods and try some real mexican? Or, if that is too scary, try Jalepeno Loco on Howell near the airport, or some delicious moles at Riviera Maya in Bayview. El Rey or Las Esmeraldas if you want to eat with the Mexicans.
